Call For Entries: Apply Now for the AAN Journalism Fellowship Award

06.10.2009
Application Deadline: January 8, 2010
Winners to Attend 2010 AAN Annual Meeting in Toronto

The American Academy of Neurology (AAN) is seeking journalists who exemplify excellence in medical, health and science reporting to apply for the 13th annual AAN Journalism Fellowship Award.

The AAN recognizes the important contributions made by members of the news media who help raise the public’s awareness of neurologic disorders through print, broadcast and online news stories regarding advancements in neurologic research.

The winner will receive special recognition, airfare and hotel with a five-night maximum stay to attend the 2010 AAN Annual Meeting in Toronto.

The AAN Annual Meeting will take place April 10 – 17, 2010, in Toronto, Canada, and provides an in-depth look at the latest advances in research and treatment options for neurologic disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, autism, Parkinson disease, epilepsy, migraine, multiple sclerosis and stroke. More than 10,000 neurologists are expected to attend and more than 2,000 abstracts of scientific research will be presented.

How to Apply:

Applicants should submit the following:

1.) Written expression of interest (no more than 500 words)

2.) A resume (include contact information)

3.) Three print, broadcast or online news clips on a neurology-related topic or any medical/science topic that covers advances in research, treatment, or care of neurologic conditions. Materials may be part of a series. Audio or broadcast clips must have a total running time of less than 30 minutes. Materials or stories included in any AAN publications are prohibited.

4.) A nominating letter from a senior editor, news director or producer.

There is no submission fee.

Eligibility:

Any reporter, writer, producer, or editor from a recognized print, broadcast, or online news publication is eligible to apply for the AAN Journalism Fellowship Award. Members of the AAN who can provide these credentials are also eligible to apply. However, members of the AAN currently serving in official leadership positions are exempt. Materials must be published or broadcast between January 1, 2009, and December 31, 2009. Past recipients of the AAN Journalism Fellowship Award are not eligible to apply.

Judging Criteria:

Judges may select up to one award recipient. Entries will be judged on the basis of originality, aptitude, accuracy, and significance to the area of neurology. Judges will also consider the journalist’s background, interest, and overall career contributions to neurology-related topics.

Applications may be sent through the mail or email using the following information:

Im Focus: It’s All in the Mix: Jülich Researchers are Developing Fast-Charging Solid-State Batteries

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.

The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
